Usage

{{Quote}} adds a block quotation to an article page.

This is easier to type and more wiki-like than the equivalent HTML <blockquote>...</blockquote> tags, and has additional pre-formatted attribution and source parameters.

Note: Block quotes do not normally contain quotation marks.

Synopsis

Unnamed (positional) parameters

{{quote|phrase|person|source}} This markup will fail if any parameter contains an equals sign (=).

Numbered (positional) parameters

{{quote|1=phrase|2=person|3=source}}

Named parameters

{{quote|text=phrase|sign=person|source=source}}

Example

Wikitext

{{Quote|text=Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.|sign=[[William Shakespeare]]|source=''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', act III, scene I}}

Result

Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.

Restrictions

If you do not provide quoted text, the template generates a parser error message, which will appear in red text in the rendered page.

If any parameter's actual value contains an equals sign (=), you must either use named parameters or replace the equals sign with {{=}}. (The equals sign gets interpreted as a named parameter otherwise.) All The Tropes prefers using {{=}}. See Template:=.

If any parameter's actual value contains characters used for wiki markup syntax (such as pipe, brackets, single quotation marks, etc.), you may need to escape it. See Template:! and friends.

Be wary of URLs which contain restricted characters. The equals sign is especially common.
The above text is transcluded from Template:Quote/doc; you can change it or view its history. (How does this work?)

You can experiment in this template's sandbox (create | mirror ) and testcases (create) pages.
